November Collectibles and Cuddles . . .

 
 
 
 
Pheasant collectibles from my parents.  My mother marked my daughter Susan's name on the back.  I must give them to her. Her grandpa would let her hold them when she was a tiny tot some forty years ago.  One of the treasures my parents would find at the many estate sales they attended. My dad loved to pheasant hunt so for him this was a treasured find.
  A sheaf of wheat and the pheasants will soon be sitting on our Thanksgiving table. 
 
 
 
 
 
Although she isn't her usual perky self, all is well with Snickers.  She had four "things" removed from her cuddly little body this past Wednesday.  Stitches here and there, you can see one area above.  We have had a few restless nights but all reports are just fine and soon she will be up running around for her treats like usual.  The vet has her on a new regime though, less crunchies, less lunch, less treats and maybe soon, a pound less too.
(I think that is called a diet!)  
 
 

Sleepy eyes and less than perky days . . .
She does not like her picture taken so
sometimes a blurry photo is the best I can do.
 
 

 
Snickers says thank you for your kind comments!

i like the pheasants - and even better that they were loved by your parents.

Hi Lynne,

Poor little Snickers,
I hope that she will be back to her little self soon
and be healthy and well.

I love the pheasants, they are great and isn't it lovely to have them from your parents.

Hope your weekend is going well

Heal up soon, Snicky Poo. And good luck with that diet! Diets are no fun at all, but sometimes totally necessary, so don't get mad at your mama for withholding cookies, okay?

Oh, poor poor Snickers. Willie sends her a big doggy ugha-muga (nose rub). Tell her I'm not fond of diets either, bless her! Bonnie

So if I cut down on crunchies, lunch and treats I’ll be as adorable as Snickers? It’s nice to see other families using cherished collectibles on their Thanksgiving table. It would not be Thanksgiving without our traditional family of turkeys out. Peaceful weekend, Lynne. Hang in there Snickers. Soon all will be well.

lol ~ I just read what I posted. We are not a family of turkeys. Our collectables are . . . you know what I mean. Ever try to fix something and it just gets worse?

Drat!!!
